2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Markgrafen, Bamberg
Dark chestnut color, clean; generous, compact head. Aroma of caramel, paper, cereals, light vanilla (not impressive). Correct body; the mild flavor of dark caramel is dry and quite poor; the bitterness is low and some comes from the roasted malt. The final is empty from any emotion. Boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy brown body with light lazy carbonation. Grainy caramelly aroma with grassy notes. Dry-sweetish caramelly toffee taste with grassy notes. Mid-bodied. Dry-sweetish dusty grassy aftertaste with oily buttery herbal notes. Highly drinkable session beer. (0.5l bottle at DBF’11. Also had it at brewpub, but that was before I started rating.)

Bottle at home. Clear coppy pour, thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is swampy and with some spicy malts. Flavor is slightly sweet, somewhat roasted, somewhat bitter in the finish and quite clean. Drinkable, yet a bit boring brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle: I’m afraid the cap leaked a bit on the bottle I had, it seemed a little undercarbonated and oxidised - but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Reddish brown colour. Dark fruity aroma, notes of cocoa. Nutty, mildly roasty and minerally flavour with hay-like hops in the finish. Reminds me of a flavourful brown ale. Great, robust Dunkel!
